Copying a VM Template

Copying a VM Template


On the FusionCompute portal, copy a VM template and save it as a new VM template. The methods for copying a VM template are as follows:

  • If the template exists in FusionCompute, copy the template and save it as a new template.
  • If the template is stored locally, import the template, create a VM from the template, and convert the VM into a new template.

During the operation, you can modify parameter values to make the new template different from the original template.


  • You have obtained the template tool FusionAccess_Windows_Installer_V100R006C20SPC102.iso.
